    Lego ideas!

    Hey everyone, I have recently started a lego ideas project called Lego sea animals. For the project to get into review i need 10,000 supporters and if it then passes review it will be made into a real set! :) So i am asking everyone just to have a look at the project (follow the link) and if you like the project or if you like the designs of the animals, then support and share the project with your friends and family who might also be interested :) Hopefully together we can get to 10,000 supporters and i may one day be able to tell my Lego crazy niece and nephew that I have made a real lego set :D Thanks everyone :) https://ideas.lego.com/projects/117629

    [MOC] The Young Man and the Sea

    Here's what you look like when you try to be like Santiago, but are not really up to it ;) That was my first real test with those 1x1 round tiles from PaB walls. Good for placing behind some solid glass, not so much for anything else (don't try to sneeze nearby...). I hope you'll enjoy it :) Full gallery is here: http://bricksafe.com/pages/Mestari/the-young-man-and-the-sea

    Seabattle in the south

    Hello there, here comes a battle i prepared a few weeks ago. I have to storage the ships for a long time, so it was necessary to make some pictures of it. The pics shows a battle between a "meridian galley" and two ships of the "Fleet of the Realm". Seabattle in the south by THE BRICK TIME Team Just have a look: Find out more on our flickr gallery. Greetings from germany BoB
  5. This is not pirates per se, but it's about sail ships so i thought it fits here best. If mods think it should be moved to other section of the site, please do so. But we can pretend one of the ships is actually pirate ship ;) General look: It all started on Pyrkon convention Poznań/Poland in 2014. We got some free bricks and among them there were horse hats (sorry, don't know the proper English word) for old horses that were replaced with new design. Someone said the piece is really useless for anything than putting in on a horse. Someone else joined in and said that the piece is as useless as speedor'z bodies from Chima. O'rly? I wouldn't be myself if i didn't accept the challenge and prove them both wrong. So the Sea Horse steam boat was born: Once i had it i had to build some other sailboats. Then my LUG was in need of sea themed dioramas for our exhibition that is now taking place in Swarzewo/Poland, so i built a scene for it: One of the elements i'm most proud of is the Lightouse:: And the windmills: But the main feature of the scene are ships: And some more detailed look at the ships: For more photos please go to http://zbudujmy.to/2...bitwa-na-morzu/ You can also see my other new NPU creation here: http://www.eurobrick...howtopic=107970

    Seashore Ambush

    This build was a fun break from my usual castle MOCs, and was pretty quick to build. Expect more pirate themed MOCs from me in the near future All C&C appreciated
  7. "Oh Centurion, Stedor has extinquished their lighthouse again. It will be a dark night like always..." "Hahaha, our Centurion will not hear you. We are in the middle of a sea... Come on, let's sleep some... Aisha, it's your turn to watch out for coming lights" And so the Ulandian Navy Soldiers in the Ghuba-ya Biashara closed their eyes and started sleeping... A few hours later: "I saw something in the water!! The ship is moving!!" Aisha yelled, "Shut up Aisha, it's a shark swimming around the ship. Even in the moonlight you can see it is a shark. And beside, we are anchored" Aisha was right, there was a shark in the water. But also a whole bunch of Mermaids who removed the anchors of the Patrolling Vessels so they could move them to another territory. A guerilla against Ulandus together with Bregir for Square J15 For the glory of the High Council!! Long live the real Kaliphlin!! C&C ofcourse welcome!!

  9. If you were a pirate stranded on a tiny island with a large, scary shark circling around, and could only have 3 objects with you, what would they be? There are only two correct answers to this question. You would either want a bottle of rum, another bottle of rum, and yet another bottle of rum... or you would want a gun, a bigger gun, and an even bigger gun. (Any combination of these two scenarios will only lead to dangerous pirate behavior and the risk of self-inflicted harm.) Lego set number 1492, "Battle Cove" gives us that three-gun island. Our lonely pirate may be down, but he is most certainly not out - not without a fight, anyway. Number: 1492 Name: Battle Cove Year: 1992 Pieces: 26 Minifigs: 1 Sharks: 1 Price: Unknown Availability: USA Only Informative Links: Brickset Set Entry Bricklink Catalog Entry Peeron Catalog Entry Lugnet Catalog Entry Brickipedia Entry Brickpicker Page Today I am reviewing Lego System polybag set 1492 "Battle Cove". Unfortunately, I do not have the original packaging, but I do have a complete copy otherwise. This is a set I received as a child. As such, I must cite the informative links I have placed above as historical records of this set. Apparently, this set was sold only in the USA, and according to some inventories, this set may have only been sold at certain stores or was perhaps part of some kind of promotion aimed at consumers. At any rate, it would seem that this is one of the rarer sets in the pirate theme. The Unboxing Unbagging A fresh copy of 1492 (image courtesy of BrickLink) Imagine receiving the polybag shown above. What would you do? Why, rip it right open and dump out the contents, of course! Instructions (front) The front of the instructions shows the same image as the bag packaging depicts. We see the entire set, complete with minfig and shark against a nice background and surface. As a hobbyist photographer, I really appreciate these old box/instructions photos. The good people at Lego put a refreshing emphasis on their product art. This set being from 1992, Lego has not yet turned to computer rendered artwork, and someone has put together a nice backdrop and foreground to show off this set. Bravo. Instructions (back / random segment) This image of the instructions back side is for completion. The type of instructions with this polybag set is more of a folded leaflet that has two sides' worth of instruction panels. So the "back side" in this case is really just one of the instruction panes (the first one showing how to put a shark together... and a pirate.) Set contents (sans instructions) Here we have all the pieces in this set laid out. According to set inventories, there are 26 pieces. However, I count 27! I believe the online inventories are counting the shark body and head as one piece, however the instructions show how to connect the head to the body, suggesting that the shark probably came unassembled. But enough of the geeky piece count nitpicking. Instead, let's nitpick the parts we have here! We have a decent assortment of colors here. We have 4 printed pieces. We also have 3 guns (one being a cannon, actually). (There is no rum, however. Rum bottles would not be included in pirate sets until the Pirates of the Caribbean line.) A palm frond is always a welcome addition to any collection. A smattering of light gray elements and two 6 x 6 yellow plates finish up this set's parts. These are nice to have. Printed corner wall element One piece that sticks out in particular is the printed corner wall element. According to online inventories, this element is only in 7 sets produced between 1988 and 1995. And of those 7 sets, this set is the smallest (the other six are all above 160 pieces and mostly castle-themed sets). That might make this set a viable way to acquire this piece, if not for the fact that this set was a USA exclusive. United States issue non-firing Lego cannon One interesting aspect of Lego sets released in the USA is that the cannons do not fire. I had no idea this was abnormal from the rest of the world until I was out of my dark ages. I'm not an expert on this minutae, but I've heard it explained that it was a safety concern. I believe that some copies of pirate sets in 1989 sold in the USA _did_ in fact have the pull-firing cannons at first, until the design was tweaked to have the non-firing type. The interesting thing is that the newer line of pirate sets from 2009 had firing cannons, including copies sold in the USA. The dark gray shark Here we have the set's dark gray shark. Let's be honest here: the shark is the crowning jewel of this set. I think we can all agree on that. (Be sure to cast your vote in the poll at the top of this thread!) The Minifigure The pirate (front, back) It seems that this minfig torso always accompanies this particular head, and it appears in 5 different minifigure permutations across 21 sets (all of them "classic" 80s/90s pirate sets). But in each canonical minifigure, the pants are either white, gray, or black, and the fig also always sports a tricorner hat (albeit black or brown). If not for having black pants instead of light gray, we might have been able to classify this pirate as Rummy, the first mate of the Renegade Runner. (For more pirate naming fun, see this thread). Could this pirate in fact be Rummy with different pants? I'm undecided; share your opinion on this matter by replying to this thread! Regardless, we have here a minfig whose head and torso printing are some of the more detailed in the line. I personally think the face print is one of my all-time favorites. You have an eye patch, scruffy hair, stubble, and a pleasing smile. This is part of what makes classic pirates so memorable. Everyone is happy in classic Legoland, and why not? The torso on this pirate is also one of the more detailed in the line, with a jacket exposing an undershirt and a thick, piratey belt. It's also worth noting that this torso can perhaps be put to good use as a bluecoat officer or perhaps some kind of privateer. Let's get building. The Build With so few parts in this polybag set, the build is relatively straightforward. The instructions are nice and simple, without any of the modern-day part callouts. Build foundation After a step or two, we have the beginnings of a wall and our cannon placed down. And after just a few more steps, we have our completed structure. (That was quick!) Island and structure (front) From the front, we have a bit of a fortification wall, our proud Jolly Roger pirate flag flying, and a palm frond to protect our heroic pirate from harmful UVA and UVB rays during his stay. Island and structure (rear) From the rear, we can see that the pirate has a place to hang his rifle. We also note that there are hiding places for pirate loot and cannon balls. It's a shame there aren't any in this set. How is our pirate to make use of the cannon without any ammunition? The complete build Here we have the set all together, including the pirate and the shark. Despite its size, it is an aesthetically pleasing set! For sets of this size, our imagination is really what drives the story here. Who is this pirate? And what of the island itself? Is it an abandoned fort, perhaps? There's enough playablity here to have a fair bit of fun on its own. With a chomping shark, a yawing cannon, and an armed pirate, we have all the trappings of a good pirate adventure. Still, there is room for improvement. A lack of a cannonball or two is a definite oversight, even if the cannon does not actually fire. And the addition of a monkey or some gold would really have made this set fantastic. It's a good "parts pack" at the very least, and a good addition to any pirate collection. There's enough to have a bit of fun with. If price data were available, I believe we would find a respectable price-to-parts ratio. It is also very easy to take elements from this set and add to other pirate sets. The minfigure and shark are easily added to a larger ship, as are the cannon, firearms, and flag. At the end of the day, this is a solid polybag set that captures the freespirited nature of classic pirate sets. I give this set two rusty hooks straight up! Scoring Playability: 6/10 (Minifig and shark fun, but your imagination will do some heavy lifting here.) Design: 7/10 (A reasonably attractive structure given the part count. But an extra palm frond or a monkey would be nice.) Parts: 9/10 (Some useful, detailed parts here. Multiple printed pieces. Good for crew building and armaments.) Minfigs: 7/10 (Relatively common minifig parts. But a classic and one of the more complex face and torso printings in the line.) Sharks: 9/10 (You can't go wrong with a dark gray shark. Point off for lack of additional sharks.) Price: N/A (Pricing is lost to the sands of time. Likely comparable to other polybags of its time.) Availability: 2/10 (Only available in USA! May have been an "exclusive" set only at a certain store.) Final Score: 7/10 (A solid pirate polybag. A good mix of parts, and a welcome addition to any pirate universe.) Uh oh. Looks like our hero is in trouble!... Whew! That was close! Our hero lives to fight another day.

    [MOC] Seal Rock

    This is our 'Seal Rock' Lego creation which is based on Lego Friends 'Seals Little Rock' set 41047. I hope you like the MOC. Feel free to leave any comments. Thanks, Mike
  11. First up, Kaneta-Bur. The Kaneta-Bur is a reef-dwelling, blind testudine that is largely harmless unless poked in its sensitive feelers. Do not poke the feelers. https://www.flickr.com/photos/114035403@N02/sets/72157648181625432/ Next up, Juru-Ra. A reef-dwelling, long-necked pleiseohominid, this creature is commonly referred to as a sea monkey. Despite the name, they are quite dangerous, especially in packs. https://www.flickr.com/photos/114035403@N02/sets/72157647779467050/ Oh god he poked the feelers Lastly, something completely different: The desert sedge. A sedge slides across the ground on millions of microscopic hind legs, and steers and balances itself with its two large clawed hands. Desert sedges are peaceful creatures. While peaceful, they are not afraid to defend themselves. https://www.flickr.com/photos/114035403@N02/sets/72157648135061206/ How'd I do? Oh, make that four. The Cara-Ni, or Reef Deacon, is a species of violent rahi living in the reefs off the coasts of Po-Koro. No two are alike in coloration, though they are all very vibrant due to the protodermis "blood" of the Mata Nui seeping out into the reefs. All reef-dwellers that have this strange coloration are under the umbrella term "Protodermoid Anomalies". https://www.flickr.com/photos/114035403@N02/sets/72157647778428249/

    Kaliphlin Inland Sea Tower

    The final Version of the tower on the inland sea which I have been working on, the latest addition to it is the battlements (thank you Gabe for the suggestion), and the reduction of the roof due to the increased size of the battlements. This is also the first moc I have made that has a (short) story to go along with it. Archaeologist Professor Durnovian is searching for the legendary remains of one of the first settlers on the inland sea, the settlers lord Vanderfel from long before the 4 guilds where established. Vanderfels resting place and most importantly the island lords legendary great sword, the location of the sword was lost when the islands were overun by Orcs and most of the islands records were lost. Little did he know that the legendary lord lay only a few studs away under one of the many towers built to give warning of the numerous attacks by the pirates that plagued that part of Historica.

    Kaliphlin Inland Sea Tower

    One of the first fortifications to be built on the inland sea. I rebuilt my fort adding in the tan 1x2 bricks to brake up the wall a bit thus avoiding big gray wall syndrome. I also wanted to try out this roof design.
  14. My First Moc (free build) for the Guilds of Historica, it is located on the edge of the inland sea. One of the first settlements there it is soon to be followed with major expansion.
  15. Hi! It's my entry for the 200 contest! This is a ship with a yellow submarine. Hope you like it! Part count is exactly 200! The creation has four functions, two of them are controlled by hand, and two are controlled by the two black gears at the rear (but by hand ): - telescopic crane - posable robotic arms on the submarine - high or low position of the crane - control the reel inside the ship to put the submarine into the water Thanks for watching!
  16. Hello there Here is a sad one. Not the MOC but the story after. The Lighthouse of Grimmhavn Build up 2011 and shown on many events, especial in the LUG Show Case in Berlin, germany. About 8000 bricks and many hours of work were needed for this one. Its a pity, but the lighthouse crashed a few weeks ago, after an event in Berlin. Here is the last picture of it: Best regards BoB

    [HSH] Cat A - Steampunk Kraken

    Hello there I had some dark weeks without that much building, but the Home Sweet Home-Contest gave me motivation to build again. There are several cool Lego-Space themes, but i took the chance to build once again in one of my favorite Sci-Fi-worlds: Steampunk! "Every style-conscious Gentleman needs his home. Some have mansions at the sea. But why living at the sea when you can live in the sea?" -Sir Octavius- This is the home of the steamy gentleman Sir Octavius and the scene stands on a round base. The base is not nearly 48 studs in diameter, but i wanted to have space to play with the tentacles overlapping the border of this circle. All photos on MOCpages. Stay creative and steamy! *toof* *toof* Jonas

    MOC: Hunting in the Loch

    Here's one of my most recent MOCs, Hunting in the Loch: The man grasped his spear tightly. Squinting his eyes, he peered carefully into the dark, swirling water. Something dark seemed to be moving about under the water…or was that just a reflected raincloud? A bright flash of lightning broke through the cloudy sky, and the rain began to beat even more heavily on the hunter’s head. Suddenly the water in front of him exploded into the air, and a black, writhing shape burst out. The man never saw its head; by the time the immediate shock had passed all that was visible was its scaly back, capped with large, menacing spikes. Shaking rain out of his eyes, the man prepared to throw his spear. Soli Deo Gloria! Thanks for viewing! :)
  20. Finally got my old minifigs back and can start doing more Brickfilms again! Captain Redbeard's fallen on some hard times out on the open sea, and is about to lose the plot altogether... Lemme know what you think?

    A Clever Stratagem

    A continuation of my Pirate story. Previously The Spanish galleon rocked lazily to and fro some distance off shore, when the sentry saw the glimmer of armor on the beach. "Carlos, look! El Capitan returns!" "Si Pascal, I see him by his armor, I dearly hope he has blotted out the pestilence from these islands… ...But then again, he would not return if he hadn't." Unfortunately for the Spanish, it was not their captain in the rowboat. "Myar har har! This be the best plan ye ever hatched Cap'n!" "Quiet mates! We wouldn't want to spoil the whole plot! Let me do the talkin'. I know a few words of their gibberish that will get us safely aboard." As the rowboat approached, the soldier hailed. "Hola, Señor Capitan! We are so glad to see you back safely! With a wave of his hand, and keeping his face turned down, Captain Mark replied. "Si, si! We beat the scoundrels badly! Throw down the ladder, mi amigo, and I will tell you all about it! ___________________________________ To be continued. Arrr.. Thanks for viewing and have a great day! I'm sure most of you have seen this boat already, but I'm trying to finish the story.

    "Now What?..."

    [pid][/pid]231C "I ask ye, Cap'n, whose idea was it to attack that vessel?" Lew inquired coldly. "Arrr!! Belay that!" Captain Mark growled, "How was I supposed to know that the ship we attacked was part of a very well-guarded treasure fleet!?" "We might have at least taken a look about before giving them a hearty broadside..." grumbled Bob. "Shipmates, there be no need for quarreling. As soon as we step ashore on yonder island we'll get us a new boat and sail the seas once again!" The Captain's talk calmed his disgruntled crew but then the first mate called out... "Ahoy Captain!" "Arrr! Forget it Preston! You know as well as I that we ran out of rum yesterday..." "No, Captain, there is a ship on the port side but a half a mile away! I think she be one of the Spanish Galleons that gave us a rough reception a few days past." They all sat in silence for a moment. The stillness was broken when Captain Mark bellowed... "Row for your lives, me hearties!! She's set her course straight for us!" "That's a mighty hard thing to do when we only got one paddle Cap'n...!" ...... To be continued. Arrr.. The first of many pirate scenes to come. Thanks for viewing and have a great day!

    CCCX Ras-al-Jabar This story tells us a tale of a gorgeous and rich land now buried under the sands, Ras-al-Jabar "An old castle called Ras-al-Jabar was built hundreds of years ago by Emir of Rabaat in the southern realm of Mamlakat. The Salam river runs through these lands and it is the main source of fresh water and fish. Ras-al-Jabar is the center of trade and learning. Markets impress everyone by rich variety of products from all over the world. Ras-al-Jabar's library is still the largest in the southern region.

    CCCX Pursuit in Blackhand Bay

    This is my first entry to the Miscellaneous category. Be sure to check out the Video! During the first Outlaw Crusade, Loreesi and Lenfel fleets scoured and harassed the coasts and the swamps and marshes of the Outlaws. They attacked any vessels they met. Here we see two Loreesi war galleys chasing down some smaller outlaw craft. This one was so much fun to build! :D I like nothing better than palmtrees and war galleys filled with knights! ;)
